Best way to patch Hypalon? Also need to find leak..

Just bought an Alliance 15 foot center consol with a 50 honda. The port side holds air for about 7 days but the starboard side onloy lasts for about 2 days. These a re fairly slow leaks. Is there a web sight that offers a tutorial on finding leaks and repairing them?

I also have some water in one of my tubes. Do yo know if these holes can screw out thus giving me access to siphin out the tubes?

Thanks

You don't need to disaasemble the valve to drain the water, assuming you can twist and rotate the tube/boat to get the water to the valve.

If you push in the blue center dot and rotate it clockwise about 90degrees, the valve flap should lock open. Push and rotate counterclockwise to reset the one-way portion to closed.

Mix up a bit of washing up liquid with some water, grab a paint brush and paint the soapy water on the tubes the look for bubbles, normally quite easy to spot as leaks will froth up, have a good look around the seams, if both sides are going it may well be a seam.
